love it as great workout.
I was getting bored with the stair stepper and treadmill routine when I learned about Ergatta on Wired. I knew rowing was a really good, non-impact workout so took the plunge. Amazing machine, great software, it evokes a video game urge to do better and keep up. I used to watch TV while I worked out which sort of made my workouts less than intense…but with this rower I enjoy the challenge so much that TV is not necessary. I like the focus I have with this rower. The workouts are very doable for this almost 60 body. It has been about 3 weeks and I just made the 50K milestone. I enjoy the rest periods between the high intensity intervals. I feel really good after each workout. Highly recommend this product.
The workouts will keep you engaged, and the variation in the workouts when you follow a plan make it fun to keep coming back for more. I am a cyclist, and I love being able to vary my routine with the rower. I can feel my core and hips getting stronger. The machine is beautiful, and the sound is soothing. Buying this was a great decision.
I really enjoy how it takes you from beginner and slowly moves you up in intensity and stroke rate. It’s a great workout
Having never rowed much before, we didn't know what to expect. The wait was long but since it arrived a couple weeks ago, I've crossed 100k meters. The programs keep my attention and continue to motivate. There's even some mild spousal competition over whose turn it is to row!
The interface is simple and elegant. The programs are intuitive and simple. The wood design looks great and the storage footprint is tiny. It's not often I give five star reviews at all. I could say more, but I honestly can't think of any problems with it at all.
Thoroughly impressed. Absolutely recommended.
P.S. there was one glitch with a USB connectivity issue but I had the USB cable plugged into the wrong USB port. No problems since my "user error" was corrected thanks to their responsive and helpful tech support.
